On March 20th, YoungShip Bergen hosted an eventful evening together with Wilson AS, one of Europe’s largest small bulk carriers. The evening kicked off with some delicious food and refreshing drinks, setting the perfect atmosphere for networking, and meaningful interaction among the attendees.

We were honoured to have Øyvind Gjerde, CEO of Wilson, with us this evening where he started the show with a captivating presentation of the company’s rich history, and their remarkable journey in the maritime industry. Truly inspiring!

The following presentation was held by Erica Hauger, Charterer at Wilson, who provided invaluable insight into the commercial perspective of bulk trading leaving our attendees with a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in chartering withing the bulk segment.

The final presentation was held by Stefan Mirkovic, SHEQ Manager at Wilson, who conveyed the importance of safety measures in bulk trading. He also shared some gripping real-life cases and what valuable measures they took to prevent recurrence.

Later in the evening, we headed to Haven for our traditional Ankerdram allowing our attendees to socialize and make new acquaintances.

A huge thank you to Wilson for hosting us and for contributing to the success of the evening. Also, thank you to everyone who attended. We look forward to seeing you on our next event!
